At the very least I'd get a cheapo block from aliexpress or similar. Something actually made to be fit to a CPU would be ideal and wouldn't cost much more. There is little performance difference between cheap chinese CPU blocks and expensive ones but make sure you get one with some sort of channels over the CPU.

A car radiator will work fine. Only real issue is the inlet/outlet are pretty big so you may need a big pump to move water effectively as well as some sort of adapter. Also most car radiators are aluminum which would cause issues with copper/nickel blocks.

Not sure I'd recommend doing it though, the coldest you can cool your water down to is room temperature. Regular PC radiators can get you very close to that, easily.

I was looking for daily use and to see what that setup was capable of.


I was zapped out by the time I listed the waterblock, I will def get something else. I really wouldn't want to replace the water pump over and over. "140 dollars full custom loop." Yeah but after looking at how easy it is to make your own oversized reservoir\radiator\fan setup.... The prices for tiny little radiator\res look like a joke.



Supposedly car ac radiators are usually copper.


If I do plan to tinker, I will get a reliable pump\water block. If it's not to hard on the pump Ill run it up to the attic to reduce noise\heat in my apt. Or closet. Regular pc Radiator\Fan\Res seem waaay over priced. They assume I care about having all my components inside my case. I can do better.


p.s. That liquid cooling system I brought premade in my first post failed in the first week and almost killed my rig (pump). I had to ship it back to get a replacement.

Ya the Rez, and rads and fans, if you dont care what they look like ect, go ham. The pump, and Block I would not skimp out on.

the biggest concern with the CPU block, Temps aside is the fact if that leaks, your system is KO. That is the last thing you want to start gushing water, you can get ray storms and such pretty cheap these days, its honestly worth it for the peace of mind alone. Same with pump, the risk of failure could be a problem. If the res leaks, its not a biggie, shoot I break resovoirs all the time, and fixn them with hot glue bwhahaha. However, I live by the motto there is some things you just dont cheap out on. Pumps, Blocks, and Power Supply's fall in that boat. Not to say thats fool proof, I have seen nice blocks leak, and have had a Corsair PSU catch on fire on me (luckily I was there, beside it when it happened, it literally caught on fire, after frying some cathodes and some Hard drives), so stuff still can happen, just minimizing risks.

That all said, I think you are going to find Car AC rads are not as cheap as you think. They are about the same price as our rads in that size range, look at heater-cores, thats a 120/140 rad at best, they are 40 dollars and so is a WC rad.

https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/...343/18820061-P (pretty sure thats Alu)

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/B-RD...896772932.html 31 dollars, 140mm rad.


There is a reason we swicthed to pc fans, mostly to mount in the case, but for more optimal surface are nothing not hit by a fan and improved on pc rads for our needs over the years. Their is actually a lot of R&D that has went into improving our hobby.


I still think after finding the rad, adapting the fittings, getting a good pump and block, building all this and making it work, Material and Time invested, an EK fluid gaming kit would have been cheaper.

Let's look at the design difference.
A PC cooler is built for a smaller scale. The fins and coils are close together, designed to be cooled by a small fan.
A car radiator has its fins and coils a ways apart. It is designed to let a lot of air pass through it.
Most car radiator are bigger than your PC; a house fan like a 20 inch box fan would work well with one. It is possable to make a system like this that doesnt look ghetto, but it will take quite a bit of work. And will not fit in your PC case.

A car radiator can be used to cool a PC, but that is not what it was designed to do. There are better choices out there that are more efficient, easier to use, cheaper, and more closely fit this application.

You don't need to run a car radiator.

What you need is a junk refrigeration condenser and included fan. They are small and have very powerful fans. You then get 10-15m of pipe i use 6mm ID and mount the fan and condensor unit outside. A single d5 will be able to push that far but i use dual d5 in series. I guarantee you that this setup will outperform any overkill internal mounted setup and be silent.

I now run a hailea 1000a 1hp water chiller in place of the setup above.

If you want advice pm me.
